Rangel’s birthday bash


Congressman Charles Rangel’s birthday bash at Tavern on the Green in Manhattan on Aug. 11 features an interesting assortment of headliner guests: Gov. David Paterson and Richard Ravitch, a former transit authority chairman and Paterson’s pick for lieutenant governor. Other featured guests include New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, his Democratic opponent and New York City Comptroller Bill Thompson, New York’s junior U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan. Should be lively.

The top contribution to Rangel’s Victory Fund starts at $2,500.

  3. $2,500 who can afford that. The rich NYC democrats who are for increasing the minimum wage. The same ones who are for the Union Workers. Let’s not forget the 10% of americans who are unemployeed

  5. Yes, that’s the man. one and the same – but – You left out Punta Cana, the rent-subsidized apartments (plural) in NYC while claiming D.C. residence, thus avoiding the bloat of NY taxes, and his “public policy institute” scam. I could go on and on, but I have to take a shower.
